“It is a terrible thing to look over your shoulder when you are trying to lead change – and find no-one there”.

Franklin D Roosevelt 

Change Management

Organisational change can be a challenge to navigate – both for leaders and staff – yet it is an ongoing and iterative process in most organisations.

At Personal Best, we believe the best way to deal with change is to create an environment of transparency and communication, removing the mystery and fear where possible and helping people to understand what is happening and why – and how that affects them.

We offer both change management consulting where we partner with clients to enable them to successfully facilitate change, and change management training programs.

1. Articulate context
Articulate the organisational context and rationale for the change.

2. Define expectations

3. Identify capabilities

4. Assess readiness

5. Embed the change

Our change management programs provide tools for people to:
